During a search, the officers found Class A drugs whose street value was estimated to be US£44.37 million.
Perzenowski appeared at Folkestone Magistrates’ Court on Saturday and was remanded to appear at Canterbury Crown Court on December, 13.
NCA Branch Commander, Mark Howes, said that a really significant amount of drugs was taken out of circulation.
“The seizure will deprive the organized crime group responsible for them of profit which would have fuelled more offending,” he added.
